Picking Some Pretty Posies

Picking Posies

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a fantastic Friday!  I had been without my vehicle in RL due to an airbag replacement gone wrong, so today was filled with errands that had been put off for two days.  It’s never fun to sit in the dealer’s waiting room for several hours at a time.  Thank goodness for a lift home from a friend!  I was so glad to have my freedom back today, and spent most of the day out of the house.  Before the evening completely passes by, I wanted to make sure to pop in to share a Fabulous Find with you.  I hope you enjoy it!

Tracking Down the March Hare

As Ripley and I traveled along the Mad as a March Hare Hunt trail, we came across this gorgeous dress at JLZ Fashion.  With bright, peony-style flowers splashed across a snow white background, this frock will be a perfect outfit in which to celebrate the arrival of spring.   What better place to show it to you than a field of blush-tinted tulips on the romantic Luane’s Magical World sim?  Featuring a pale pink collar and ribbon, a curve-hugging fit, and a hemline that falls to the upper thighs, the Spring Floral Halter Dress will cost you just 1 Linden dollar once you locate hunt icon, which is a purple and black sitting rabbit.  Although it comes only in standard mesh sizes, I was able to adjust the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara body so it fit just right.  I love the soft, feminine appeal of this dollarbie!  The hunt runs through March 31st, so you have plenty of time to track down some prizes for yourself.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

No Dogs Allowed?!

No Dogs?!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I sure am happy it’s the weekend.  Since Ripley and I had such great luck at the Country Girl Hunt (you can see my last post {HERE}), we decided to check out The Flowerage Hunt 2. It’s grid-wide, and runs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time if you’d like to do some sleuthing of your own.  You’ll be looking for a flower in a vase, and each hunt gift costs just 1L.  Our first stop was JLZ Fashion, and in no time at all, we discovered this sweetly feminine, strappy mini dress.

Spring Beach

Perfect for the warm summer weather ahead, the Spring Beach frock is light and cheerful, with its all-over floral print. The soft colors and figure-hugging design will flatter any avatar.  I like the added detail of one strap dangling down on my right shoulder, which added a touch of whimsy to the outfit.  Sexy and sleek, this outfit made a welcome addition to my summer wardrobe collection.  A pair of dark sunglasses is also included in the hunt package, but since Ripley and I were strolling through a shady forest on the Peacehaven sim, I opted not to wear them for my photo.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL plus apha layer

About All the Cats…

As we explored the sim, Ripley and I came upon a clowder of cats gathered around a couple of old fashioned milk cans.  The little critters twined themselves around my legs, purring, and I scooped up one super-friendly white feline.  Upon noticing my canine companion, however, a few of the cats froze, and hissed a warning.  Ripley, always trying to be helpful, knocked over one of the galvanized containers, and milk trickled onto the ground.  The cats happily lapped up the creamy spill, but as soon as the pupster tried to help himself to some of the proceeds, a fierce conflict ensued, ending with yelps and a scratched nose.  Poor Ripley!  So much for trying to be helpful!  As we were taking our leave, two cats glared at Ripley, and pointed out the “No Dogs” sign.  “It’s all right, Pal, you’ll always be MY best friend,” I consoled my sidekick.  He wagged his tail happily, and we journeyed home, where I treated his battle scars.

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Have a Flirty Summer

Zalea JLZ

Hi there Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone had a spectacular weekend! Mine was good, but I’m glad to be here doing one of the things I love, sharing fabulous freebies with You. Today I put together a real cute casual warm-weather look with the aid of some FREE hair from Zalea and a dollarbie jacket and shirt combo from JLZ Fashion.

This wavy hair style from Zalea reminds me of those beachy hairstyles you always hear about this time of year. Everyone wants that “fresh from the beach” look, and I think this style gives you that. This specific dark auburn color version of this style is a FREE subscriber gift available at Zalea. To get this gift join the subscriber first. Then click the box below the subscriber button on the subscriber. This will bring up the notice history. Once you get the history menu, choose option 2 (the notice about the fatpack sale) and then choose deliver. You’ll get a box with a note about a sale, and the hairstyle will be included in the box. Unfortunately the sale has ended, however the FREE hairstyle is still available.

When I was looking for things to share here on the Fab Free blog, and having some trouble finding things, Love told me about this summery mesh top and jacket combo from JLZ Fashion. If you have been looking for something cute and casual, and you love floral prints, this is the find for you! The mesh jacket/top combo is JLZ’s contribution to the Flirty Summer Hunt. The FSH is a dollarbie hunt, so all the hunt gifts are 1 linden. This hunt prize comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as fitmesh for Isis, Freya, Venus, Lara, TMP, Physique, and Hourglass bodies.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

It’s been muggy in my part of the world thanks to the unusual amount of rain, and the last thing I want is my hair making me feel hot and sticky. This messy bun is the current group gift at a hair shop called Mello. The Mello group is FREE to join, so this cute style is absolutely FREE, you just need a group slot. The gift includes a color change hud with a wide variety of pastel colors.

The Flowerage hunt started a few days ago, and Astrid showed us another of the gifts in her post here. This cute floral top is also excellent for keeping cool as the seasons become warmer. The top is fully mesh, and includes many mesh sizes, there’s definitely one that will fit just about any avatar shape.

A .:Glint:. of My JLZ Fantasy

Sometimes my dreams are glints of fantastical color… and thanks to .:Glint:. , JLZ Fashion, and Besom, I can bring my fantasies to life in Second Life this week too!

Glint of a JLZ Fantasy

JLZ Fashion has some great practical every day fashion, but I discovered recently that they have a plethora of fantasy gowns for the avid roleplayer as well!

First things first! Stop by the mainstore and Join the group for FREE and pick up the current FREE group gift pictured above. The detailing is fabulous, it’s mesh in all the standard sizes and when it comes in one piece for easy styling!

I gave you a close up of the jewelry I paired my gowns with today also in this picture. .:Glint:. is currently holding an in-store mega-hunt with 40 items to find! There are 20 each of female, male, and unisex items, though I found that all of the items were fairly unisex and because they had resize scripts built in, worked great with any size avatar. The necklace I donned above is a male necklace called Celtic Cross and comes with matching stud earrings suitable for male or female avatars either one, though the earrings were in a separate “hunt spot” in the store. Each hunt item is only 5L making this mega-hunt, mega-worth your time!

Glint of a JLZ Fantasy [3]

JLZ Fashion is also currently participating in the Twisted Hunt! If you are lucky enough to wrap your mind around this warped hunt and find the twisting cube in the store, the gorgeous gown above is yours FREE! I love the texture and the flowing cape… perfect for any roleplay adventure!

And Besom! Congrats to this Creator who is celebrating 20K+ members by giving out the gorgeous hair you see pictured in these photos called “Milk” (and thank you from all of us who benefits from this generous gift)! The Besom group is FREE to join and this lovely style in every shade imaginable with the included hud is yours FREE if you go to the store to pick it up!

Glint of a JLZ Fantasy [2]

One last thing! The gown you see pictured above, is the current Midnight Mania board prize at JLZ Fashion! It’s set at a very low slap to win (only 25 slaps), so get there early to get the gown! And you must be in the group (but remember — FREE to join the group) and you can get your FREE gown!

Into the Woods

Hello FabFree Folks, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.  One of my favorite things to do over a gorgeous weekend like this one is go camping. So when I saw the Camping Trip Hunt I jumped on it.

camping_002

This is the ‘Plaid Tie Outfit’ from JLZ Fashions. I love the cute casual look and the sassy but still modest shorts. This is something I’d even wear in RL as well as SL.  The hair style I’m wearing here is ‘Velma’ from RunAway hair.  Usually, Hunt prize hairs are just the one color but [RA] has given us the entire fatpack for ‘Velma’. That’s 30 colors for us!

camping_001

Adorably Strange Wares has set out this ‘Glamping Hammock’ for the Hunt and I thought it was the perfect way to relax in style. The hammock comes with it’s own two trees and gently falling leaves. There are ten poses so you’ll be sure to find the one that makes you happy and relaxed. Plus, it only has a nine land impact.

 

The 0L Camping Trip Hunt runs until May 15th so get your tents and hiking boots and go get it!
